Abstract: Slow growth, high interest rates and a deflationary tone to the real estate markets are perceived for the industry within the next ten years. The author focuses on the “crisis in the user’s ability to pay,” as occupancy and construction costs escalate. Economic survival is shown to depend on major modifications in underlying assumptions and new courses.
